Donate Blood in January & Enjoy Buffalo Wild Wings

The American Red Cross and Buffalo Wild Wings® are calling on the community to donate blood throughout the month of January. Those who come to give blood during the month of January at any Fairfield County Red Cross Blood Drive will receive a $5 Buffalo Wild Wings coupon, courtesy of Buffalo Wild Wings!

“We are proud to make a tangible contribution to the community in a way that helps to save lives – especially through this program, which underscores the importance of partnership,” said Larry Tipton, Buffalo Wild Wings franchise owner. “I hope we will help the Red Cross not only meet, but surpass, its local blood collection goal in January by providing a little something extra for those who are willing to brave the cold to donate.”

Although an estimated 38% of the U.S. population is eligible to donate, less than 10% actually do each year. This incentive to donate is in the spirit of National Blood Donor Month and the increased need for blood donation after the holiday season.

An appointment is not necessary in order to donate blood and receive the gift. However, appointments are strongly encouraged and those with an appointment will be taken first.

Appointments can also be made by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS. This opportunity will only be available at participating Fairfield County blood drives.

BUFFALO WILD WINGS® is located at 1283 Memorial Drive, Lancaster, in the Plaza Shopping Center. The location is one of 10 franchises owned and operated by Lancaster entrepreneur, Larry Tipton and his Lancaster Wings, Inc. (LWI) organization. LWI currently owns Buffalo Wild Wings locations in Lancaster, Athens, Heath, Canal Winchester, New Philadelphia, Mount Vernon and Reynoldsburg, as well as three locations in Arizona – Bullhead City, Flagstaff and Prescott Valley.
